First away will be Welshman Melvyn Evans in the WRC Subaru Impreza that he won the event in last year.

Paul Bird will get away next in a WRC Ford Focus.

The first of the all-local crews are Steven Quine and Richard Skinner at number seven, followed by Nigel and Michaela Cannell at number eight and Andrew Leece and Graham Fargher at number nine.
